April 14, 2010: Superhero Foundation to Help Prevent Child Abuse

It's a bird, it's a plane - yes, that's Superman making his way through North Park along with the rest of his Super Friends in the Second Annual Superhero 5K/1K Run/Walk, a unique event designed to drive awareness for child abuse prevention and support organizations that rehabilitate and heal the victims of abuse.

What: Every child needs a hero. But abused children need superheroes. Every day, four children die as a result of neglect or abuse. On April 17, Ariba, Inc. will join forces with the Superhero Foundation to help break this cycle and host the Second Annual Superhero 5K/1K Run/Walk, a special event to benefit Family Resources of Pittsburgh.
